About Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse

Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse sits on a working wheat and sheep farm in the beautiful Cape Winelands area of South Africa (not far from Cape Town).  In addition to picturesque grain and grazing fields, framed by the mountains that rise up in the background, the Bartholomeus Klip property has its own private 10,000-acre nature preserve. This is one of the most welcoming vacation destinations on the continent of Africa.  Guests who choose this traditionally-furnished farmhouse are greeted by breezy verandahs in the summertime and reception rooms with warm, crackling fires in the cooler seasons.  Specially-made bath products fill the spacious Victorian-style bathrooms, while each suite features bright colors, elegant bedding, comfortable period furniture, and en suite bathrooms.

Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse sits on a working wheat and sheep farm in the beautiful Cape Winelands area of South Africa (not far from Cape Town).  In addition to picturesque grain and grazing fields, framed by the mountains that rise up in the background, the Bartholomeus Klip property has its own private 10,000-acre nature preserve. This is one of the most welcoming vacation destinations on the continent of Africa.  Guests who choose this traditionally-furnished farmhouse are greeted by breezy verandahs in the summertime and reception rooms with warm, crackling fires in the cooler seasons.  Specially-made bath products fill the spacious Victorian-style bathrooms, while each suite features bright colors, elegant bedding, comfortable period furniture, and en suite bathrooms. There are five suites, each of which can be furnished to suit a guest's individual needs.  The Orchard Suite, the Klip’s master suite, boasts a king-size bed and its own private verandah.  A stay in any one of the five suites means that you can enjoy an all-inclusive package that features everything from early morning coffee and baked goods to bunch and lunch to afternoon tea to the day's headlining culinary experience: a gourmet multi-course dinner.  Two daily guided activities and use of bikes, boats and fishing equipment is also included in the package. Guests are also free to see the workings of the farm or to enjoy a nature drive through the preserve. In addition to its charming suites, the Bartholomeus Klip property has self-catering accommodations: the Wild Olive House and Cottage. The three bedroom House has its own sitting area, porch and kitchen.  A romantic single bedroom cottage is also available for people seeking more privacy and freedom during their stay.  All services offered to suite guests are available a la carte to Wild Olive guests. What to do See a working farm: witness a wheat harvest and sheep sheering, or simply enjoy the scenic mountains that frame the fields. Take a nature drive to see wildebeest, springbok, zebra and a number of endemic plants and flowers on the 10,000 acre preserve. Enjoy early morning coffee and afternoon tea in addition to the gourmet meals served to guests each and every day. All Images provided by Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse
